2005 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my E as a conscession to my then partner. I was pleasantly surprised at what it could do off the beaten path. I am also disappointed in what it lacks in power, towing ability and traction ""out of the box"".

Best Features

Love the boxy body and the amount of stuff that can be jammed in the back like 18, 40# bags of sand. Not much suspension room left, but we got 'er done!

Worst Features

More horsepower. Please toughen up the suspension so I can pull more weight; say a medium size boat or trailer/load or a camper that weighs greater than 1500 lbs. thanks
